Want to run this on a Raspberry Pi? Go here... WavePi: Use Raspberry pi (2/3/4) as a AIO MIDI synth

I through some unknown urge I have started up a soundfont project. The goal is to have the best possible midi sound that can come out of a synthesizer. Size is not of any concern for me, quality is my only goal! For this project I'm working on making sf2 files bassmidi compatible. Mostly so they will work with Zoltan's excellent program, Falcosoft MidiPlayer.

THE FORMATS

I'm releasing these in two formats, SF2 and SFOGG. SF2 is uncompressed and very large, this is basically the "sourcecode" for the thing. SFOGG is a custom format used by FalcoSoft MIDIPlayer (based off of SF2Pack). It's WAAAAY smaller for 95% the same quality. I used to release SF3 format files too, but there's something wrong with the conversion process that I can't seem to fix so I'm dropping that format for now. I will be grouping this soundfont project into separate patch banks to make things easy to configure for compatibility. most video games will only sound right with the GM complete soundfont but some may require additional patches to get the full sounds out of the midi data. At some point I may make a compatibility list, but that'll have to wait till after SC88 patch set is done

THE LICENSE

I've only used samples from places with compatible licenses to to GPL with a exception to allow the music made from this to be sold for $$$. What does this mean? Do what you want with this, You can also make your own version of this soundfont, as long as you license it in a similar manner. I'm working on moving this all over to CC0 which would remove almost all limitations, but I still need to find some replacements for some of the GPL samples I'm using

SOURCE LINKS

The Files in this list were used to make my soundfonts. They are all either GPL or CC0 for license

DONATIONS

I'm always working on various projects and this one is probably one of my more active ones. More money will mean less time I have to spend doing odd jobs to pay rent, and more time spent on this.
